I also noticed audio watermarking on the song “Abandon” by French Kicks (2008), even though it was released by Vagrant Records, owned by BMG Rights Management and distributed by Warner Music Group. Unclear it if still had audio watermarking  or was reuploaded on Apple Music/iTunes Match or YouTube Music.

That’s interesting as we don’t usually expect to hear the UMG-style watermark on Warner releases. I can certainly hear it on most tracks on that record

I found this recording from the same label apparently released at the same time but doesn’t appear to be watermarked https://open.spotify.com/track/6BbLqagnzIdIUxxAPO9nHt?si=cz8PY23cQqC83cn1nzJSKQ

I’d be interested to hear the French Kicks CD to see if it’s a production mess-up.

Cheers.
